Question and Answers

Q:

model 110.61086000 runs, will not heat. Second time for the same problem. Replaced heater element. Ran fine for two days. Back to the runs, will not heat.

A:

Hi,

Thanks for contacting  ManageMyLife.  I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your appliance.

Well if the motor is running the thermal fuse is Ok.  The question is how is the voltage?

You will need to use a multimeter and check when the dryer is on and running the power.

NOTE:  Live voltage checks are dangerous, and possibly deadly. Exercise caution at all times.

 

Check L1 to L2 and your meter should read 240 volts AC

With unit still running, check L1 to N and there should be 120 volts AC.

With the unit running, check L2 to N and there should be 120 volts AC.

If this is good you will need to check the hi-limit thermostat. 

Easy way to check is to simply jump it out. And then temporarily run and see if there is heat.  If so replace the hi-limit thermostat. Do NOT forget to remove the jumper after testing.   

If still no heat, at the control board, check the thermistor.  With a reading of 10K ohms the temperature on the thermistor is 80-85 degrees and that is no heat. 

 Next unplug the dryer and at the control board, on the heater relay jump the black wire to the red wire and reconnect the dryer and see if heat is coming on.  If so replace the control board. 

On the other hand there could be something in the mouth of the pump causing a slow drain. 

Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help.

Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.

A:

The E1 error code indicates an open thermister or thermister circuit (harness from the thermister to the control board). You will need an ohmmeter to test the thermister & wiring harness. The thermister should read 10K ohms at room temperature. I am sending you instructions from the service manual on testing & replacing the thermister.

Please click on the image below for information & instructions covering the E1 error code.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.

Q:

How do I replace the thermister on my Kenmore dryer?

A:

First disconnect power to the dryer. Use a putty knife to release the clips holding up the front lower service panel. You will see the thermister mounted on top of the blower housing. Be sure to check the thermister harness from the control board before replacing.
